The movie stars Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle (who also directed), Louise Fazenda, Edgar Kennedy, Minta Durfee and Frank Hayes. Arbuckle performs several feats of dexterity in the first few minutes and, near the end, runs and bounces on 17 closely spaced apparent telephone wires over 20 feet (6 m) above the ground.

In 1995, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." It has been shown on Turner Classic Movies.
